of the person who killed rockies, there is a $1,000 reward. reporting from san francisco, patrick sedieio, cbs 5. >> isn't that awful? a vigil was held last night at walnut creek for a young man shot and killed during a confrontation with police earlier this week. the vigil was held outside of the hair salon where he worked. the police were called to an apartment early thursday where a woman said that banta was attacking his roommate. the police say he was armed with a knife and that they were forced to shoot. friends and family say that banta was a gentle person who must have suffered a breakdown. >> and we just don't understand how someone could have taken his life. i am sure that something happened. but how -- someone could take, he is small in stature. 5'4", 130 pounds. how threatening is that? >> family members say police have not shared any information with them about banta's death. the officers involved in the shooting are on paid administrative leave during the investigation. >>> this morning, negotiators in the senate are still trying to forge a last-minute compromise to save all americ
elephants until they can care for themselves. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> good evening. scott is off. i'm rebecca jarvis. in a few hours, the u.s. will go over the fiscal cliff which could trigger across-the-board tax increases and billions in spending cuts. however, there is hope for a soft landing. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell and president obama said today a deal was close. but late in the day house leaders announced they will not vote on a deal tonight. they're waiting for the senate. so what happens now? we have two reports beginning with nancy cordes on capitol hill. nancy, good evening. >> good evening to you, rebecca. it looks like the deadline pressure finally prompted a meeting of the minds today. negotiators agreed to a plan that extends the bush era tax cuts for 99% of americans. but they are hung up on one key spending issue, and so it looks like we will go over the fiscal cliff at least temporarily. >> we're very, very close to an agreement. >> reporter: senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said his round
will kick the can down the road. >> reporter: senator bob courter told cbs this morning he predicts the meeting will bring only a temporary solution. >> this afternoon's meeting feels much to me like optics to make it look like we're doing something. let me just say one more time this is a total dereliction of duty at every level. >> reporter: going over the cliff would affect 88% of u.s. taxpayers whose taxes would go up on average $3,500 a year. many americans are frustrated the showdown has gone down to the last minute. >> they're playing games with people's lives. i don't think that's correct. >> it's just unfortunate that at this point the two sides can't come together because it's been like that for the last four or five years. >> reporter: 2 million americans will also lose jobless benefits on saturday if a deal isn't reached and the nation's borrowing limit to finance our $16 trillion debt will also be reached on monday. danielle nottingham, cbs news, washington. >>> my own mom at christmas dinner told me do not raise my taxes. >> after a few words of advice at home the ba

designed to benefit everyone. cbs 5 reporter cate caugiran is in san francisco to give us some history. >> reporter: 100 years ago the first muni line started running from geary to 33rd avenue. today, muni railway serves about 200 million passengers a year. it has a network of 63 bus routes a historic light rail system, streetcars and three cable car lines. but before muni even existed, the city's public transit system involved horse-drawn buggies. to celebrate, service on all muni services including the cable car line will be free starting right now until 5 a.m. tomorrow. originally muni was planning to charge riders a 5-cent fare because that was the original cost about 100 years ago. but instead, they decided to go with free, which i'm sure riders won't disagree with and it won't be the last time we'll see free fares on muni. they will do it again on new year's eve as they have for the past 13 years. in san francisco, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> that's a bonus, good to hear on a cable car that's six bucks a ride. you got a family of four? 24 bucks. >> even if you don't have kids, just

the ravens on sunday at 1:00 eastern time on cbs. so, tony, what's your overview of the afc? >> well, it really is setting up for a new england/denver championship game, and i think it's going to be great with tom brady playing against peyton manning. that's the way i kind of see the whole thing playing out. but i'm excited about our game on saturday night. we're going to have houston and cincinnati. and matt schaub, the pressure is on him. houston was 11-1 at one point. schaub has to really start playing well for them to have a chance. first of all, they've got to protect him better than they did today, but he has got to step up in a big game and make some big plays. this month of december has not been great. houston can still turn it around, but i think it all falls on matt schaub and how he plays on saturday. >> and of course, now they've given up, ultimately, home field advantage. they might have it at some point, but not all the way through. and like you say, can you imagine that there might be a little bit of interest in brady versus manning in denver in an afc championship gam
new gun laws. david keen was on cbs "face the nation" i want you to listen. >> the first thing we have to do is protect our kids. we're willing to debate the whole question of the semiautomatic so-called assault weapons, we've debated it before. we had an assault weapon -- so-called assault weapons ban for ten years, we had what senator feinstein is suggesting, it was allowed to expire, the fbi, the justice department and others, the studies made no difference. if we're looking at things that are effective, let's talk about it, but first, let's talk about protecting our kids. >> you heard what david keen, who's the nra president had to say on cbs face the nation regarding gun laws, what do you think? >> well, with all due respect to the nra, and i believe in the second amendment in general, but i also believe that i won't pretend to be a gun rights lobbyist if they don't pretend to be school security experts. that way we can respect our field. one gun in the hands of a kid is one too many in a school. when we look at the firepower, i think we need to have some rational conversations on
tells a cbs correspondent it's too early to know how this came about, what group was involved but it was an attack on americans. the committee ranking member says the statements are part of a broader, troubling pattern. >> the administration repeatedly has refused to name the threat we face. >> senators joe lieberman and collins rank the senate investigators are denied a te tailed timeline on the c.i.a. talking points. specifically how the talking points were ma saneled with terms like al-qaeda dropped. the report says administration spent weeks to debate internally with whether or not it should turn over information delib rative to the congress. frustrated by the delay, the committee charneled the committee never fall in the same trap. >> it's not the responsibility of the intelligence community to draft unclassified talking points, for public consumption. especially in the heat of a national political campaign. >> seeming to undercut administration claims there were no actionable intelligence that could have prevented the attack. the report says patrick kennedy one of secret
inouye, reported by cbs news. picking up on the remaining time and before the next senate, comes in. president obama spoke on friday and talked about the senator's service and he might not have considered a career in public service had not been for the senator. [video clip] >> he was a proud democrat and a proud american. were it not for those insights planted in my head at the age of 11 in between is the land and a trip to yellowstone -- between disneyland -- i'm not have considered a career in public service and might not be standing here today. i think it's fair to say that daniel inouye was perhaps my earliest political inspiration. ost: senator daniel in a ouye passed away earlier this year. we're looking at your political hero of 2012. mitch is from tennessee on the democrat's line. caller: i just want to say that my political hero had to be bernie sanders. he started talking about not paying taxes on the high end. i say bernie sanders got it right. ask anybody about the rich paying taxes. that's the problem right there. we need to take our fight to the top like it is supposed
if there is no deal made. one poll i saw, cbs, had approval rating for congress, 11%. really, the president has them in the corner, arguing against tax cuts for the middle class. i think that is not where the republicans want to be. ultimately, i think they are going to have to step back. i don't know -- i doubt they will be able to do a big thing in the next two days, i think they will do a mauler package. but they are -- they're facing real voter backlash if we go over the cliff and tax cuts go up on the middle-class voters. >> we are hearing a number of lawmakers saying, i don't think it's the worst thing, senator johnson who was just with us said that he thinks it is being over dramatized, it is not the worst possible thing to go over the cliff. how do the republicans spin it if we do? >> i don't think it's how they need to spin it. i think doug is absolutely right that president obama has won on this, i think very short-term battle with respect to the tax cuts. however, the bigger issue that we are not discussing enough, which i think this whole debate should have centered around, is not the g.
